Call for papers
Electronic lexicography in the 21st century: Lexicography from Scratch (eLex 2017)
The eLex 2017 conference aims to explore innovative developments in the field of electronic lexicography. Papers on the following topics are particularly welcome:
• Automatic creation of dictionary content
• Crowdsourcing and its use in lexicography
• Visualisation of lexical data
• Linked lexical data and its presentation
• Exploitation of language resources: monolingual and multilingual corpora, learner corpora, lexical databases (e.g. Wordnet, Framenet, DANTE, Wikipedia)
• New reference tools with a dictionary element (e.g. learning tools, writing assistants)
• Dictionary writing systems and other software available to the lexicographer
• Integration of NLP tools (e.g. grammatical annotation, speech synthesis)
• Dictionary content in different digital media (e.g. tablets, mobile devices)
• Usage practices of the users of electronic dictionaries
• Automated customisation of dictionaries to users’ needs and characteristics (e.g. proficiency level, mother tongue)
• Integration of electronic dictionaries into language learning and teaching (e.g. CALL, translator training)
The abstracts, to be submitted by 1 February 2017, should be between 300-500 words in length (excluding references).
There will be three categories of presentation at the conference:

• Paper (25 minutes, including discussion)
• Software presentation (25 minutes, including discussion)
• Posters and demos
Software presentations should not include only a demo of the software but also other aspects, such as the analysis of user needs, rationale for certain features, specifics of projects/datasets etc. The posters and demos are intended to present research still at a preliminary stage and on which researchers would like to get feedback.
In order to give a presentation at the conference, you must have your abstract accepted.
The abstracts should be submitted via EasyChair:
